Ensure proper Vary:, Cache-Control headers across Synnefo, inside a single API request handler, see #3358.
Responses should contain at least:

Cache-Control: no-cache, no-store, must-revalidate, max-age=0
Vary: X-Auth-Token

Proposed patch in api_request:

+        patch_vary_headers(response, ('X-Auth-Token',))
+        patch_cache_control(response, no_cache=True)
+        patch_cache_control(response, no_store=True)
+        patch_cache_control(response, must_revalidate=True)

before returning a response.
